sometimes you're in the wrong, and sometimes you're the bad guy, guys.

i just want you all to know a few things.
so listen to me.

read every word carefully (i know you always do, but perhaps read this twice).

sometimes you're in the wrong. sometimes you're the bad one, guys.

every situation needs a bad guy. there is a black and a white through processes of elimination.

sometimes you have to be mean to be kind.

sometimes down is up, and that might be another flagrant radiohead reference, but it helps my point.

take for example the following

you get on great with a female
she has a boyfriend
you're a bit confused how you feel
but she's starting to like you

uh oh, guys! uh oh!

it's time to make sure she doesn't do something she'll regret.

in this case, you must become, voluntarily no less, the bad guy.

you must begin to show her that you're no longer interested and that everything she does is of no consequence.

at first she'll be upset by the lack of attention you're giving her...

but LATER

she'll thank you for saving her romance from a ridiculous affair.

yes, that's right.

the trials and tribulations of north americans in europe are comical, teenage and embarrassing.

so is life.

every situation of complication requires a bad guy.

or girl.

like my exgirlfriend, guys.
she's a really bad guy.

but she NEEDS to be a bad guy so that i get over her sooner.

i hate it
but it's for the greater good, guys.

GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

every situation needs a bad guy for the greater good, guys.

But in that case isn't the bad guy really being good? Is that irony? Is there no bad guy then? Aren't there ways to rectify the situation without having to feign disinterest?

Or, you could just bang her and still be the bad guy. But this way, you get yours too.

DaveC is the good guy, guys.

Just like Jennifer Aniston was the Good Girl.

And right there, I win the six degrees of Holden Caulfield award, guys.

I think Zoomerang96 is saying 'if you want to serve the age, betray it', in so many words.

Great advice... it's just hard to know when someone is merely being cruel to be cruel. If you know what I mean.

indeed so, kieran.

i was also trying to come across as being comically entirely self-important in the thread to sort of mask my point, because honestly... noone comes to lemonade stand/xeidon to hear me give advice on anything.

not when you boil things down.
there's a black and white.

i hope everyone appreciated the irony in my last post.

it's a shame that i have to point it out, but i really want people to notice its cleverness.

It was so clever that I assumed you wouldn't have to point it out.

I guess I gave you a little too much credit. Credit lowered.
